Good morning Gerald. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to helping you.

Your father can simply sign a new will revoking this previous will that sister manipulated him into signing. He is not forced to be stuck with this prior will. If it doesn't reflect his wishes for his estate, he can simply do a new will. The first paragraph of his new will should contain a provision similar to this: "I, [Your Dad's Name], of [City, County, State], make this my Last Will and Testament, and I revoke all Wills and Codicils previously made by me."
